Hand bound artist’s book. The covers and pages are all sink art paper that I colored. The book is bound by sewing over leather tapes with the link stitch. I hated the bright green leather that I ended up using as I was not properly organized. As a result I used sandpaper to age the leather and remove the bright green. Originally, I was going to feed the tapes back between the covers through slots. This looked ugly to me, so I left the tapes loose and sewed on some beads. The title is written in calligraphy on brown paper.
